Whidbey Machinists plan 2015 charity golf tourney
OAK HARBOR — Machinists Union members who work for contractors at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station will host their third-annual charity golf tournament in August.
The cost is $85 per player, which includes cart rental, lunch and 18 holes of golf. Entry forms are available at all IAM 751 union halls in Puget Sound. To request a form, call the Everett Union Hall at (425) 355-8821.
The event is a fundraiser for North Whidbey Help House, a community-based food bank that serves northern Whidbey Island. Help House provides supplemental and emergency food, Salvation Army prescription vouchers and telephone health and welfare checkups.
Last year’s event drew 48 golfers and raised some $2,100.
Machinists Union District Lodge 751 represents nearly 200 civilian workers at NAS Whidbey who are employed by URS Corp., Delaware Resources Group and Doss Aviation. All have joined the union since 2010.
Originally formed in 1935 to represent hourly workers at the Boeing Co., District Lodge 751 of the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers now represents more than 33,000 working men and women at 52 employers across Washington, Oregon and California.
